Office furniture latest trends envisage the improvement of comfort and the conditions which enable people to work better and to be more creative in a collaborative and sharing atmosphere. Pedrali, whose essence is the Made in Italy, presents at Orgatec (Cologne, 25-29 October, Hall 9, Stand B041- A040) new products and ideas for the working spaces through a project designed by Calvi Brambilla.
The project of the Milan-based architecture studio consists of two big side walls with a series of settings, spaces and situations strictly connected to the working environment: from the meeting room to the break-out area, from the conference room to the company restaurant without forgetting the waiting areas. Real scenes in movement that interpret in an ironic and surreal almost dreamlike viewpoint the company’s furniture collection: from a shark which worryingly passes by behind a window of a waiting area to three little boats which sail over a snowwhite top of a table in a meeting room. Like pictures of a movie, these tridimensional frames revolve round the central area where it’s possible to touch the same furniture showcased in dark and unified shades.
Two absolute novelties will be shown at Cologne stand: Snooze, the first sound absorbing panel of the company designed by Marcello Ziliani, ideal to improve the acoustics quality of any office space and Vic, the upholstered armchair born from the recent collaboration with French designer Patrick Norguet, which will be shown in a steel leg version. The two new proposals will be presented along with other products of Pedrali collection such as Social, the modular system suitable both for a widened co-working and for a tête-à-tête coffee break and Babila family large and versatile, perfect to create a home-office corner or creativity sharing office spaces. Products fulfilling the requirements of modern, flexible and virtual working environments which have been chosen to furnish among others Sky Italia offices and Copernico co-working spaces in Milan but also Google headquarters in Dublin.
